So, I actually auditioned for this show a couple of months ago and was super excited for the show premiere. Having done my research, the show’s success in other countries led to a hyped new series for Americans. The concept of the show is completely different for television and the contestants aren’t that bad, but unfortunately America is tired of singing competitions and/or being obligated to have to watch live and vote. We do live in the era now of DVRs and we have grown accustomed to watch our shows later.

Rising Star ratings are totally NOT rising. The singing competitions hit another series low this week, dipping below 1.0 in the demo.

Rising Star also hit a new series low with a 0.9, down a tenth from last week’s series low 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. On CBS Big Brother scored a 2.1, down a tenth from last week’s 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.
